Financial struggles at Crytek have caused its UK division, which currently trying to develop Homefront: The Revolution, to simply cease working. Kotaku reports via inside sources that Crytek UK workers that have not received their full pay have stopped reporting to work, having handed in formal grievance letters to the company. It is currently estimated that as a result, over 100 people have left the studio.

Crytek has denied any serious financial situation, but on top of this issue, the company is already facing allegations of failing to pay staff on time. In addition, the failure of flagship title Ryse: Son of Rome to bring in any significant sum of money resulted in the cancellation of the planned sequel.

So far, no employee has gone public with the accusations, and all claims are, thus far, anonymous.
